    First aid step 1: Call 999

    Accidents at work are relatively common-place, yet individuals aren’t as comfortable in knowing how to deal with them. All employers have a responsibility to provide a first aider within the workplace, however, there are times when work-place injuries require intervention from the professional medical services.

    When to call 999?

    999 is classed as first aid step one when the victim of the work-related incident isn’t breathing.

    This can be checked by attempting to find a pulse, and pressing your ear towards their mouth or chest to feel and hear for breathing.

    Once this has been confirmed, The British Red Cross recommend that you:

    1. Call 999
    2. Press down on the victim`s chest 30 times
    3. Tilt their head back and lift their chin
    4. Pinch their nose
    5. Blow air into their mouth, twice
    6. Repeat steps 1 to 5 until the emergency services arrive

    What happens when I call 999?

    If you need to call 999 after a work-related accident, there is no need to worry or panic. Staying calm is paramount as it will ensure you relay accurate information when it most matters.

    When you call 999 to report your colleague’s accident you will be asked which service you require. In the case of an accident at work that requires medical attention, you would ask for the ambulance service.

    You will then need to, first of all, tell the operator where you are and the contact number that you are calling from. It is important that you provide this information first, in case you get cut off.

    Following this, explain as clearly as possible what has happened, any equipment that was involved and how the work-related accident occurred. Describe the injury and how the victim is suffering. It is important to state that they are not breathing, if you believe this is the case.

    It is unlikely you will be asked any further questions and the ambulance should find its way to you in a matter of minutes.
